This summer, the 2012 Bob Huggins Fantasy Camp will be like never before.
Yes, there will still be interaction with former Mountaineer Basketball greats. Yes, "campers" will still get to develop their basketball knowledge and participate in basketball drills and games. And of course, yes, attendees will get to begin or expand on a relationship with one of the greatest Coaches in the country, Bob Huggins.
But this weekend, June 8-10, not only will campers get to continue the tradition of a camp inside the walls of the West Virginia University Coliseum, but they will also get to compete inside the brand new, state of the art WVU Basketball Practice Facility.
With an estimated cost of nearly $25 million, the new practice facility will be one of the most modern practice facilities in college basketball. Fantasy campers will have an exclusive opportunity to enjoy this facility that the average fan can only dream of.
Being such a high profile event, the Bob Huggins Fantasy Camp only accepts the first 40 applicants in order to be able to provide the most memorable experience for each camper.
And if being coached by Huggins isn't enough, campers will also receive instruction from some of college basketball's top minds in WVU Coach Larry Harrison and Coach Billy Hahn, along with the rest of the Mountaineer Basketball staff.
Each camper will be provided meals and will be entertained at some of the top restaurants in Morgantown, as well as stay at the beautiful Waterfront Place Hotel.
With inspiration stemming from Michael Jordan's Fantasy Camp, in which he has worked for over 10 years, Coach Huggins is ecstatic that he has been able to bring the opportunity for this unique experience to his hometown.
Last year's camp brought out the faces of some of WVU's most recognizable and popular Mountaineers such as the legendary "Hot Rod" Hundley and former players Da'Sean Butler, Darris Nichols, Mike Gansey and Joe Mazzulla.
This year is sure to bring out many familiar Mountaineer Basketball greats as well as some of Coach Huggins closest friends within the college basketball family.
Although coming with a steep price tag of $3000 for this three day affair, the chance to "live like a Mountaineer" and experience Coach Huggins, his staff and WVU Basketball like never before has proven in past years to be absolutely priceless.
